HP DESKJET 3820

GREEN LIGHT FLASHING, - 16c2636.gif

Issue

Printer cover is open

Solution

Close the cover.

Issue

Printer is out of paper

Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Issue

Printer has difficulty picking up label media

Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.

There is a paper jam

Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the Power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Issue

There is a problem with a print cartridge

Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  2. Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.
  3. Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:
    • Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.
    • Press the Power button to turn off the printer.
    • Disconnect power cord from the back of the printer.
    • Remove the print cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    • Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water.
    • Clean the face and edges of the print cartridges with the swab. Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts.
    • Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls using a clean, moistened swab.
    • Reinsert the print cartridges.
    • Close the printer cover.
    • Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    • Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
  4. Calibrate the print cartridges.
  5. If the light is still flashing, replace the print cartridges.


Issue

The print cartridge has partial loss of electrical interface with the carriage connections

Solution

  1. Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
  2. Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
  3. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  4. Print the document.
  5. If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
  6. Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.

your printer has reached to its printing limit. Its printer has a maximum of printing point it is registered in the printer memory. When it reach to its limit it will stop. To solve this problem you need to use CSS Utility Software so that you can make the printer reset then you can print again. You can download for just type CSSutility software in google or yahoo. then download.

The power and paper light keeps flashing


This could mean that a 2-sided document was sent to the printer and the printer is waiting for the page(s) to be reinserted to print on side 2. Check your documentation or the HP support page http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=75045&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us
for more information.

The power light blinking indicates the printer is preparing to print a document. The resume light indicates 1) needs paper, 2) a paper jam anywhere in the printer, or 3) the ready to print side 2 of the document.

I hope this helps.

1) take a flash light and inspect the paper path just to make sure there really is nothing there.

2) print a test page from the printer by pressing the big button ( I think) one of the buttons, can't remember I work on so many models

3) take out cart. turn off then on, install cart. and do step 2

what happens

If you love it (3820) better learn how to clean the service station or it will shear the gears and be done.
See my post under the blinking light problem with 3820s.
I really like the printer and wish someone had told me this before mine broke. No answer for your question, but HP.com should have manuals as a pdf download.
